Good morning from a cold, wet and miserable Hastings day. A day to sit inside and do my photos. I am doing well but still am not allowed to eat solid foods for a while. So ice cream and yogurt is the order of the day for a little while longer. It isn’t too bad, the pain relief is working – I haven’t needed the codeine that I was given – I don’t like that anyway. Brufen is doing the trick.
I tried to do some real painting yesterday but it seems to take forever to get to what I envision. For those who don’t know I have joined an acrylic art class. I loved it when I was at school so I thought it might be nice to get back to my roots. There are a couple of things I have learnt – 1. you need some good brushes as the really cheap ones I brought starting to fall apart as soon as they touched the paint. 2. Make sure you keep your coffee well apart from the water jar – which for me was a broken cup. 3. It takes forever. 4. Acrylic paint is forgiving – you can do a lot of painting over it.
Anyway it was soon back to my camera. This week Jennifer at Jennifer Nichole Wells has a new series of words. This time all weather related. So for this week it was the sun. I took the above photo in Napier. I loved the way the surroundings was reflected but also the sun.
Then I took this shot last weekend at Cornwall Park and discovered this UFO in the foreground of this image.
Thanks for visiting.
